The Afrin Liberation Forces (ALF) announced on March 8 that its units had carried out a new series of attacks against Turkish Forces in the northern Aleppo countryside.
In an official statement, the Kurdish guerilla group said the new defensive and offensive operations took place between March 4 and 7.
The group shared three videos showing its fighters blowing up a headquarters of Turkish-backed militants in Afrin city center, targeting a position in the town of Azaz with an anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) and destroying a vehicle in the district of Sherawa in southern Idlib, also with an ATGM.
According to the Kurdish group, a total of three Turkish-backed militants were killed and four others were injured in the attacks.
The ALF launches most of its attacks from an area in southern Afrin jointly controlled by the People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). The group also maintain a presence within Afrin via a network of sleeper cells.
The Turkish military and its Syrian proxies have failed to counter the threat of the ALF, so far. The group is successfully increasing its attacks and improving its tactics.
